IMPORTANT: Assignment Questions Answered
I was thrilled to see SO many assignments posted for Week 1. If you haven't done so already, when submitting your assignment make sure you have tagged it: 2013 VOF Week 1.
If you tag it right, your assignment will appear on this page: http://worldpulse.com/taxonomy/term/18607
Each week the assignment is due at midnight Pacific Standard Time. At that time, we will make the NEXT assignment live. So, Week 2 will be live this evening and you will have 7 days to complete.
Make sure that when you write your assignment entry you are writing it in YOUR journal NOT in the Group journal.
Because once the group is closed the opportunity for the ENTIRE World Pulse community to read your post is lost. If it is in your journal then people can continue to read your brilliant thought and responses to the 1st writing prompt after the application is completed.
The TAG for the Week 2 is 2013 VOF Week 2

I wanted to say a sincere THANK YOU to all the applicants that are offering support to one another as we navigate this process. I am impressed! Continue the stellar collaboration my fellow sisters!
Week 2 assignment has an optional poetry section! I am so excited to read your poetry. I am truly sitting on the edge of my seat!
Lastly, your third assignment this year is connected to our current Campaign: Girls Transform the World
You are going to have an opportunity in TWO weeks to write on this. How amazing that we are going to hear YOUR voice surrounding global issues on education!!
Of special note, there is a checkbox titled Girls Transform the World for this Campaign. In Assignment 3 you will be clicking this box as well.
Can my VOF application journals count as a campaign submission?
Raising your voice for action is a key piece of the VOF program. We want all VOF applicants to have the opportunity to participate in our current digital action campaign. That's why the VOF Week 3 assignment is especially designed so that your assignment can also be used as a campaign submission. The other application assignments have a different focus and structure, and most likely won't be the best fit for a campaign submission. If you really can't wait until week 3 to add your voice to the Girls Transform the World campaign, we suggest you review the campaign submission guidelines and submit a post that is written according to these guidelines and SEPARATE from your VOF application.
We hope that clears up some confusion! And if you have any other questions about tagging or categorizing posts, don't hesitate to ask.
With much LOVE and RESPECT,
